Hear from our military students


I have taken my classroom to Temporary Duty (TDY) locations in multiple states and deployment in the IndoPacific region. In the past two years, I have flown in support of multiple large force exercises, TDY’d three times, deployed twice and PCS’d (permanent change of station) with my family to another country. Through the support of a loving spouse, impressive educators and helpful colleagues, I have been able to serve my country and complete my degree with a 4.00 GPA up to this point.
